Do you hate your job? Ever fantasise about doing something different, maybe something exotic or even xxx? Crossing the Line invites you to meet Shayne, a greying 40-something Londoner whose job has most of the attributes of any other,- long hours, tiring work, varying levels of satisfaction and sometimes interesting (though mostly annoying) clientele. By allowing the audience to follow the way he lives his day-to-day life as a paid up, card carrying member of the 'oldest profession on earth,' Shayne hopes to expose the dark, murky underbelly of the male escort industry for what it really is, - a way to pay the bills. Based on real-life stories from those in the trade, Crossing the Line is a casual meta-comedy that promises to give you your money's worth.
